Micki Nielsen Promises To End Valori With a Knockout

Micki Nielsen (18-0-0, 12 KOs) faces Alejandro Emilio Valori (17-7, 13 KOs) on September 12 at the Nordic Fight Night at the Arena Nord in Frederikshavn, Denmark.
 
Nielsen returns after a convincing points victory over the experienced Belgian Ismail Abdoul in Copenhagen last June, but against Valori, the hard-hitting cruiserweight has vowed not to leave the decision in the hands of the judges.
 
"I am looking forward to getting back in the ring," said the 22 year-old southpaw.
 
"I would have liked a knockout victory in my last fight against Abdoul, because he has only ever been stopped once. That did not happen, but a victory is a victory. Against Valori my aim is to get the knockout, and this time, I won’t be satisfied with anything less.
 
"I’ve not had a break since my last fight and I’m hungry to show that I can achieve something big in my weight class."
 
"Micki got a fine points victory over an experienced opponent last time out, but in Frederikshavn, I would like to see him a little more aggressive and try and end the fight early,'' said coach Joey Gamache. 

''Micki can progress to become a champion one-day. I have no doubts about that. But now it is up to him to show he believes in it himself.
 
"Valori is a guy who will fight. He is a boxer who wants to prove himself. He will surely come out aggressively too, but Micki must show that he is the better boxer and break this guy down with a lot body shots."
 
An opponent has also been confirmed for Rashid Kassem (9-0-0, 6 KOs). The entertaining lightweight has been pitted against Italian Roberto Priore (7-6, 2 KOs). Priore was last in Denmark in 2008, when he suffered a unanimous points defeat to Danish Kasper Bruun.
 
Tickets for ‘Collision Course’ featuring Patrick Nielsen vs. Samir Santos Barbosa and Rudy Markussen vs. Ramazi Gogichashvili are on sale now and available via arenanord.dk. All the action will be shown live on Viasat channels in Denmark.
